A listed herbicide, Command 480EC helps in holding back the yearly growth of a number of large leaf weeds in green beans, potatoes, navy bean, cucurbits, tobacco and poppies. The soluble concentrate formulation is 480 grams per litre of Clomazone that is composed of eight individual elements, one of which is responsible in restraining wild plants. Solvents and surfactants are the other elements contained in Command 480EC to ensure its efficacy.

Application, though, differs on poppies where it is used when the seedlings have appeared and during the 2 – 8 phase of the leaves.
